About

Hey there!

I’m Nata Aliyeva.  My mission is to help non-techies create amazing online courses.

I constantly ask to be called Her Majesty, the Incredible eCourse Fairy Godmother, the Magnificent Ruler of the eCourse Magic Queendom.  But no one seems to listen. So I settle for Nata, the eCourse Fairy.

I can be seen mixing Camtasia potions, casting Powerpoint spells, and sprinkling LMS fairy dust everywhere I go.

I’m assisted by a 6-year-old staff member who works as a part-time angel. Her responsibilities include generating endless distractions and making my day as fun and unproductive as possible. She is an ambitious overachiever.

Her dad, the Almighty King of Wizards, thinks I’m way too serious and need to cheer up. How am I doing?

Oh, you want the boring real-life bio?

I spent 17+ years in a large (more like HUMONGOUS) Fortune Top 10 company.  I worked in HR, Learning & Development, Performance Management and other magical places.  I hold Master of Science in Organisational Psychology.

I designed and delivered hundreds of live training courses, workshops and presentations.  No, not facebook live or youtube live.  In-person kind of live, when people still used to gather in dusty rooms to look at slides printed on transparencies.  Remember those good ol’ days?

Yawn.

I left the corporate world and have been self-employed as a coach, ecourse creator and instructional designer since 2013.

Hoot!

My dirty little secret

I lived, studied and worked in Lithuania, US, Trinidad & Tobago, London, UK, and Azerbaijan.  I also travelled to dozens of other countries around the world…  And I’m scared of flying!  That sense of overwhelming panic I feel every time I board the plane – you just don’t want to know.

I decided to build my business entirely online, not because I love travelling, but because I hate it!  I can stay in my room for months and be perfectly happy.

I’m waiting to grow my fairy wings.  Maybe flying will become more fun then.
